State health officials have lifted the statewide regional stay-at-home order that was put in place December 6, 2020 when the availability of beds in intensive-care units (ICUs) dropped below 15 percent.
With the latest projects for IUC capacity showing improvements, Counties can now go back to the reopening tier plan, where certain sectors are allowed to reopen based on case rates and positive COVID-19 tests.
For Los Angeles County, which has been in the purple tier – the most restrictive of tiers – since August 2020, it means the following sectors can reopen immediately with limitations:
- Private gatherings: outdoor-only and with no more than three households or a 15-person limit.
- Personal care (nail salons and barber shops): indoor at 25% capacity.
- Malls and retail: indoor at 25% capacity.
- Family entertainment centers and cardrooms: outdoor at 50% capacity:
- Places of worship: outdoor only
- Gyms/fitness facilities: outdoor only
A new health officer order is expected to be released Friday with updates on outdoor dining.
